We talk about the design of economic systems. This could be video game simulated economy or real business world like frequent flyer points system or blockchain based token economy.
Episode details

In Part 1, we covered the basics of token bonding curves and understand how the shape of the curve affects the incentive mechanism.

In this episode, we look into the application of token bonding curve in decentralised exchanges, DEX. Specifically, the use case of Autonomous Market Maker.

We dive into 4 case studies: Bancor, Uniswap, Balancer, Curve

The concept of token bonding curve in this 4 DEXes are the same. But the application of how the token bonding curve algorithm is built is different. So we uncover the 4 various algorithms used in the 4 different token bonding curves.
